1. Basic information
‘Fleurs des Rois’ is the florist at Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois SA, a joint stock company under Swiss law, based in Basel and entered in the commercial register for the Canton of Basel-Stadt.
The purchaser understands that flowers are a seasonal product and that floral decorations will be tailored to the current season. Not all flower varieties are available all year round. All orders will be put together using fresh flowers upon receipt.
2.2. Postage and delivery
The purchaser is responsible for ensuring that the delivery address (which must include a telephone number) is correct. Fleurs des Rois will not leave flowers in front of house entrances or flat doors without being instructed to do so by the purchaser or recipient.
Flowers for recipients at companies, hotels, restaurants, hospitals and cemeteries will be handed to the reception.
In the Basel metropolitan area and the municipalities listed on the order page, delivery is completed directly by the Fleurs des Rois delivery service. Deliveries are made Monday to Saturday 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. No deliveries are available over lunchtime or on Sundays or public holidays.
Orders for delivery in the Basel metropolitan area and the municipalities listed on the order page must be placed by 12 p.m. on the previous working day. Orders for the following day that are placed after 12 p.m. or same-day orders may also be accepted where possible, but these must be made by phone on +41 61 262 35 35.
In the rest of Switzerland, delivery is completed using Swiss Post’s Mond Express Service, which makes deliveries by the next working day at the earliest or in accordance with Swiss Post’s terms and conditions. Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois SA accepts no liability for any delays to deliveries made by Swiss Post.
Shipping abroad is not available.
If the recipient cannot be found at the given address at the time of delivery and there are no other delivery instructions, the Swiss Post or Fleurs des Rois delivery service courier will leave a notification card and take the delivery away. The order will be charged for, even if it is not collected from the post office or Fleurs des Rois shop by the given time.
2.4. Delivery costs
All deliveries and postal deliveries are chargeable. Delivery costs are charged as a flat rate per order. If the delivery costs charged are too low or too high due to the delivery address’s postal code being entered incorrectly, Fleurs des Rois will adjust the price retrospectively.
2.4. Reservation of ownership
The goods supplied remain the property of Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois SA until payment is received in full.
3. Value added tax
Our stated prices for flowers, plants and patisserie all include 2.5% value added tax, and commercial goods such as wine and champagne include 7.7% value added tax.
4. Withdrawal from contract, exchange
Orders may be cancelled free of charge up to two working days before the desired delivery date. It is still possible to withdraw from the contract after this point, but any labour and material costs already incurred will be charged.
Given the individual compositions and the limited lifespan of floral decorations, no returns or exchanges are permitted.
5. Protection of minors when selling alcohol
Swiss law prohibits the sale of alcoholic beverages to young people aged under 16. When ordering alcoholic beverages, you confirm to Fleurs des Rois that the recipient is at least 16 years old.
